Someone did a blog about medicare spending money on penis pumps, this is the text:
According to data collected by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), more than $240 million dollars has been spent by medicare on penis pumps in the last ten years. You can read more here. The “super committee” could not manage to reach an agreement to cut spending and we are spending tax dollars on this. If little old men need some help to get things done in the bedroom they should pay for it themselves. Unbelievable.
Penis pumps are used to treat impotence which can cause many health issues (including putting you at risk for certain types of cancer if I’m not mistaken) and is a symptom of many medical conditions and a byproduct of medications taken for even more conditions. So they should treat every part of you but your dick? Why, so they don’t get cooties?
Seriously, grow up people.
And to someone who complained about plastic surgery for skin cancer on her face not being covered (who ironically thought the above was a ridiculous waste of spending) I said:
Plastic surgery isn’t covered for the same reason he’s dismissing something because it treats your dick – it’s thoughtlessly dismissed as a luxury or frivolous expense. I should think you’d have more compassion. If you were a man and the meds you took made you impotent you wouldn’t think it was a waste of money. Imagine getting a disease that made your vagina grow shut, that would be the equivalent. I guess they shouldn’t treat that because that’s where you have sex ::gasp::
And to someone else who complained about wasteful spending I said:
Yes, treating side effects, symptoms and medical conditions, what a waste of healthcare dollars!
And for anyone who’s wondering, no I’ve never suffered from erectile disfunction. But I don’t think a health problem isn’t a health problem because it involves pee pee parts. If your eye or your leg stops working that counts but if your dick stops working it doesn’t? Irrational guilt about sex knows no bounds.
